History of World Heritage Day 2021
The International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) proposed a day in 1982 to raise awareness about the importance of preserving ancient culture and its historic sites. However, during UNESCO’s 22nd General Conference in 1983, this idea was adopted. This day is observed worldwide, according to ICOMOS, to restore and conserve historical sites, dying ancient tribes, and so on. People will also be reminded of their history on this day.
